Liberal comedienne Sarah Silverman has had a drastic change of heart when it comes to Trump voters.
While filming her Hulu series titled “I Love You, America,” the outspoken critic of the president said she “fell in love” with Trump supporters.
"When you're one-on-one with someone who doesn't agree with you, or whose ideology is different than yours, when you’re face to face, your porcupine needles go down," Silverman told the crowd at the Los Angeles Vulture Festival crowd.
Despite relentlessly criticizing these people in the past, she acknowledged finding it easy to connect with them once she put some effort in.
“When you’re one-on-one with someone who doesn’t agree with you, or whose ideology is different than yours, when you’re face to face, your porcupine needles go down,” she said, reports The Hollywood Reporter. “The surprise was … I fell in love with them. I had a great time with them and I felt comfortable.
“I’m trying to be open,” she said. “I’m finding if I do engage with someone who is angry at me, or angry and I’m a place where they can put that anger … it’s almost always a good experience, because more than anything, all of us what we have in common is, we want to feel seen. We want to feel like we exist. We really should — all of us — work on not getting our self-esteem from outside forces, but it is so much when somebody just sees you. It’s just like, everything melts away. We just all just human out again.”
But, of course, she couldn’t be entirely positive about the president.
"We're waiting for him to hit bottom. There's no bottom. It's bottomless," she said.
